Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov’s “scenes from a country life” tells the story of Vanya and his niece Sonya, who devoted their rural lives to support the academic work of Sonya’s father, a retired professor. But when the professor’s new, young wife appears on the scene, bucolic harmony is thrown into discord. A new version by celebrated playwright Richard Nelson and preeminent Russian translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. Following the performance on Saturday, October 5th will be a post-show discussion with University of Iowa professor Anna Barker and the cast of “Uncle Vanya”.
